    Hi all,

    I'm wanting to find out the causes of crypt melt. I've had mine in my tank for a while and since the addition of pressurised Co2 they've come on leaps and bounds, but just in the last week they seem to be melting away... Also I seem to have had an outbreak of BBA or Oedogonium, I'm not quite sure which....

    I'm holding off doing any major changes until all the ingredients to my DIY TPN+ arrive as my first thoughts was that I am not adding enough ferts. I've tried increasing the Co2 a little but it seems the defuser I have isn't as efficient as I thought as I get lots of bubbles floating around my tank and resting on the surface...
